Juventus looking to Koopmeiners and Samardzic to replace Rabiot and McKennie


Juventus are reportedly on the brink of a midfield revolution, with Adrien Rabiot and Weston McKennie potentially moving on while the club sets its sights on new recruits. Amid contract uncertainties and loan agreements, the midfield is poised for significant changes as the Bianconeri looks to address its shortcomings and build a competitive team capable of challenging in the Champions League.

La Gazzetta dello Sport report that the Old Lady’s midfield has been a point of concern throughout the current season, lacking the balance and goal-scoring prowess required for success. With several key players facing uncertain futures, including Rabiot and McKennie, Juventus is in need of reinforcements to bolster its midfield options and inject new energy into the team.

One name that has emerged as a potential target for Juventus is Teun Koopmeiners, the dynamic midfielder currently plying his trade at Atalanta. Koopmeiners has been in impressive form this season, contributing goals, physicality, and quality to Atalanta’s midfield. Juventus has reportedly been monitoring Koopmeiners for some time, viewing him as a key addition to their midfield setup.

However, Juventus’ midfield overhaul may not stop with Koopmeiners, as the club is also considering other options to strengthen its midfield. Lazar Samardzic, the talented Serbian midfielder currently playing for Udinese, has caught the attention of Juventus scouts and could be another potential target for the Bianconeri.

As Juventus looks to reshape its midfield, the futures of Rabiot and McKennie remain uncertain. Rabiot, who has been the club’s top scorer in midfield this season, is yet to make a decision on his future, with his contract set to expire in June. McKennie, meanwhile, is seeking a new contract but has yet to reach an agreement with the club.
